We provide solutions and services to our customers based on best available scientific knowledge. Our research results and services generate added value and sustainability as well as scientific evidence to support decision making.

We work in a mobile work culture which gives you the possibility to work from wherever it suits you the best. Luke offers a multidisciplinary international research environment with unique research infrastructures, experimental sites and well-equipped laboratories.

Work tasks

The research professorship in international forest policy and governance focuses on global and regional (e.g. EU) policy processes affecting forest sector (forestry and forest industries) development. Special emphasis is on the interactions of European and global policy processes (e.g. land use, energy, climate change, environment, trade) and institutions (international, private, governmental, non-governmental) with respect to forest sector.

The research professor is expected to actively develop the strategic orientation of ambitious research projects, lead the development of large-scale project entities, and to obtain long-term broad-based funding. Furthermore, the professor is expected to develop forest policy and governance research in Luke and participate in policy assessments.

Qualifications

The research professor should have a doctoral degree in a relevant field (e.g. forest policy, political science, forest or natural resource economics). A successful applicant should have a proven track record on global or European forest policy and governance research, as well as a comprehensive understanding of forest sector. The successful applicant has internationally recognized achievements on theoretical and empirical research, proven track record in obtaining precompetitive research funding, and established international networks. Furthermore, the applicant should have experience in leading demanding research projects and communicating the results with various stakeholders. Proven ability to build high quality research teams is highly appreciated.
